The CS regularly re-evaluates client needs and treatment plans in consultation with case managers.
Clinical Supervision. The Clinical Supervisor supports case managers as they help clients achieve their goals. The CS works with the entire treatment team to help case managers develop intervention strategies. The CS works with case managers to determine the best course of action in instances of crisis intervention. The CS also supervises graduate students and interns.
Group work. The Clinical Supervisor assesses the need for support groups at each site and may lead ongoing groups, assesses their effectiveness, and adapt them accordingly.
